The Harth Lab is developing novel biomedical materials and technologies to increase the therapeutic function of synthetic and biological substances.

We develop novel methods to create polymeric networks also in nanoscale to control the interaction of therapeutics and activators with tissues, cells and barriers.

Furthermore, organic and polymer chemistry is allowing for the precise synthesis and reactions of macromolecular building blocks to form a host of materials that can be tuned to serve in diverse biomedical applications.
